It isn't unusual for many users to use weak passwords simply because they're less difficult to remember or to use scripts, templates and plugins that are not updated for a long period of time. In either of these examples, it will not be difficult for a hacker to take over the website and from there on to take control of other Internet sites that may be hosted in the very same account. In order to prevent such a scenario, we have added an innovative security option known as JailHost. It restricts the access that a script has just to its own folder, so in case one of your Internet sites is compromised, the attacker will see its content, but won't be able to view any other content in your account, so the damage will be minimal. Needless to say, using JailHost will not substitute the safety measures you should always take by keeping your scripts up-to-date and using long and complex passwords, still it will allow you to restrict the damage to one site only.

JailHost in Shared Hosting

JailHost is available as standard with all the shared hosting packages that we offer and you could turn it on with just a single click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In contrast to other Control Panels where add-on domains store their content inside the main domain folder, each and every domain or subdomain in Hepsia has its very own folder, so using JailHost will make a significant difference. You can select which sites will use the feature and will be locked in accordance with your content as you could have some website where you prefer to allow users or admins to access other folders in your web hosting account. Yet, this option will add an additional level of security to your sites in addition to the firewalls that we use and even if any of your sites gets hacked, you could restore it really easy using any of the multiple daily backups of your entire account which we'll generate.

JailHost in Semi-dedicated Hosting

JailHost comes with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans and you can activate it with a couple of clicks. It is not activated by default as we don't want to prevent some scripts that require to gain access to multiple folders in the account from functioning properly. You'll be able to enable JailHost for all other sites that you have from the Hepsia Control Panel and this can be done very easily even when you lack previous experience. What allows us to offer JailHost is the way in which Hepsia handles multiple domains - they all have individual folders which could be "locked". In contrast, other well known Control Panels have add-on domains and the content of the latter is stored in the main domain folder, so if a single site is hacked, the entire account is hacked, which isn't the case with Hepsia. In the event that an Internet site is damaged despite your efforts, we'll be able to recover it the way it was without delay as we will have a couple of daily backups of your entire account.
